How can I pause up a running process over ssh, disown it, associate it to a new screen shell and unpause it?

It is fairly easy to disown a process, or make it run without a ttl, but is it possible to transfer to process to your own ttl?

note: by disown a process, i'm talking about running a command using nohup, or by running the disown builtin.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

screen is very handy for this. Launch screen, launch the process inside screen, detach from screen. Then, screen -DR to resume.

Take a look at retty which finds the stdin, stdout and stderr of a process and attaches to them. However, you don't completely own the process like you did before so you can't send it signals.
